The Firs - Elgar’s Birthplace

The birthplace of Sir Edward Elgar is most definitely home to ‘Land of Hope and Glory’. Set in sight of his beloved Malvern Hills, this small family home in the village of Lower Broadheath is the perfect environment for nurturing a creative genius.

Sir Edward William Elgar was an English composer, whose works have entered the British and international classical concert repertoire.

Perhaps by wandering around the garden over the cottage threshold a spark of inspiration may alight in welcomed guests.

Eat,shop,stay is the tearoom with outdoor area within the Visitor Centre (near the car park), where there is also Elgar memorabilia and music for sale.

Things to see and do include The Elgar Experience Exhibition, The Birthplace Cottage, Cottage garden and Visitor Centre.

Dogs: Assistance dogs welcome throughout the property. Other dogs are welcome on leads within the visitor centre (except the tea-room) and the cottage garden, sorry not in birthplace cottage.
